Kom og oplev Danmarks første Kiki Ball, når Samara Louboutin og The House Of Louboutin besøger Absalon d. 23. marts.
Dørene åbner kl. 20 og ball’et starter 21.00. Kom som du er, eller som du gerne vil være! Ball’ets tema er SAHARAN BEAUTY BALL, hvor vi hylder egyptisk æstetik og Saharas mystik.
Vi danner en runway i salen, hvor deltagerne vil dyste i aftenens 10 kategorier, som du kan læse om længere nede.
Ballroomkulturen hylder kærlighed, kreativitet, queerness og individualitet.
Scenen startede i USA i 60’erne, hvor deltagerne “gik” mod hinanden og konkurrerede i kategorier som Runway, Best Dressed og Hands Performance. Dansestilen Voguing, opstod ud af ballroom-miljøet og er en helt særegen dansestil, inspireret af egyptiske hieroglyffer og Vogue-magasinets kendte model-poses.
Et ball er sted kun af tolerance og gensidig respekt. Et sted, hvor alle er velkomne uanset køn, seksualitet, race, klasse eller etnicitet. Et sted, hvor vi fejrer hinanden og i aften alle dem, der har banet vejen for kulturen.
Hvis du selv vil deltage og “gå” til Ball’et, så læs aftenens regler i kategoribeskrivelserne længere nede. Hvis du har tvivl eller spørgsmål, så bare spørg. Vi er klar til at hjælpe alle på vej.
Join us for the first Kiki Ball in Denmark, when Samara Louboutin & The House of Louboutin visit Absalon march 23.
The doors open at 8 pm and the ball begins at 9 pm. Come as you are, or as you want to be! The theme of the ball is SAHARAN BEAUTY BALL. We pay tribute to Egyptian aesthetics and the mystics of the Saharan desert.
We create a runway in Absalon’s main hall, where the contestants will walk in the 10 categories stated below.
The ballroom culture celebrates love, creativity, queerness, and individuality.
A ball is a place of tolerance and mutual respect. A place where everybody is welcome regardless of gender, sexuality, race, and ethnicity. A place where we celebrate each other and honor those who have paved the way for the culture.
If you want to participate, to walk the Ball, take some time beforehand to learn what it means and do your research. If you need any help before or in the Ball, just ask, and we will help you.
